Computers from 1984-1989As the year of George Orwell's totalitarian future passed us by, PC technology took tremendous steps forward-including the first GUI. This gallery showcases several 1984-1989 machines from Steven Stengel‘s vintage computer collection. Steven has graciously allowed us to republish his photos and descriptions.
You can find a much more detailed description of each machine and additional photos of Steven‘s collection on his Web site Oldcomputers.net.
